Gospel of John 801-825
801) 18:10a; Then Simon Peter having a sword, drew it, and smote the high Priest’s servant, and cut off his right ear.
802) 10b; Now the servant’s name was Malchus.
803) 11; Then said Jesus unto Peter, “Put up your sword into the sheath: shall I not drink of the cup which my Father has given me?”
804) 12-14; Then the band and the captain, and the officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him, *and led him away to Annas first (for he was Father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high Priest that same year) *and Caiaphas was he, that gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.
805) 15; Now Simon Peter followed Jesus, and another disciple, and that disciple was known of the high Priest: therefore he went in with Jesus into the hall of the high Priest.
806) 16a; But Peter stood at the door without.
807) 16b; Then went out the other disciple which was known unto the high Priest, and spoke to her that kept the door, and brought in Peter.
808) 17a; Then said the maid that kept the door, unto Peter, “Are not you also one of this man’s disciples?”
809) 17b; He said, “I am not.”
810) 18a; And the servants and officers stood there, which had made a fire of coals: for it was cold, and they warmed themselves.
811) 18b; And Peter also stood among them and warmed himself.
812) 19; (The high Priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine.
813) 20; Jesus answered him, “I spoke openly to the world: I ever taught in the Synagogue and in the Temple, whether the Jews resort continually, and in secret have I said nothing.
814) 21a; Why ask you me?
815) 21b; Ask them which heard me what I said unto them: behold, they know what I said.”
816) 22; When he had spoken these things, one of the officers which stood by, smote Jesus with his rod, saying, “Answer you the high Priest so?”
817) 23; Jesus answered him, “If I have evil spoken, bear witness of the evil: but if I have well-spoken, why smite you me?”
818) 24-25a; Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high Priest) *and Simon Peter stood and warmed himself, and they said unto him, “Are not you also of his disciples?”
819) 25b; He denied it, and said, “I am not.”
820) 26; One of the servants of the high Priest, his cousin whose ear Peter smote off, said, “Did not I see you in the garden with him?”
821) 27; Peter then denied again, and immediately the cock crowed.
822) 28a; Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas into the commune hall.
823) 28b; Now it was morning and they themselves went not into the commune hall, lest they should be defiled, but that they might eat the Passover.
824) 29; Pilate then went out unto them, and said, “What accusation bring you against this man?”
825) 30; They answered and said unto him, “If he were not an evil doer, we would not have delivered him unto you.”
